Here's a pic of how to visually align the bolted location of the actuator bracket's slotted holes so that the waste gate bell-crank hole will align perfectly perpendicular to the actuator post. I'm twisting the actuator along the CHRA's circular bolt pattern so the slots and the post to bell-crank alignment work out.

Hmm, it could be something like that Mike, but this car hasn't been subjected to high boost. It's been showing oil below the head for a while now. It has always been a turbo engine. Stretching head bolts could account for it though. The good thing is that I think if it is leaking there it isn't much of a leak, more of an annoyance. The major leak is right below the harmonic balancer, but I replaced the seal last year, and just replaced the oil pan gaskets. I probably messed something up doing one or both of the replacements.

Thanks for relaying the info.

Here's a shot of the clips bolted as spacers between the compressor housing and the actuator bracket.

So, what sort of fittings do I need to hunt down if I'm not using AN? I could probably look through the brake bits at work, but if you know something...

So you were able to use the feed and return lines from the 14 housing on that of the hybrid, or have a missed something?

No, I used the flex line kit available on eBay. You can probably reuse the coolant line which is on the exhaust manifold side, but since you will get both with the kit, you might want to use them like I did. I had a 99 2.5l Ranger Dayco bypass hose laying around which made an excellent push on splice to bridge between the stub outs and the new barbed ends on the lines going back to the cooling system. I reused the oil feed hard line and got a new oil drain hose from Russ at RooSport. I also took short pieces of 1/2" copper plumbing pipe, sliced them lengthwise to create half-shells and sleeved the short sections of Ranger bypass hose so they will never be bent near the push on nibs and rupture. I might be able to post more pix tonight.
